Centering Racial Equity in the Work to End Homelessness: Aligning Vision with Practice at the Systems LevelJune 16, 2022
Intractable as it may seem, figuring out how to center racial equity in the work to end homelessness can be effectively done with strategic planning, the right information, and investment. Systems leaders have a high level of influence over cultural norms, policy, and practice, making them well positioned to shape homelessness system design to promote racial equity. This webinar will offer some practical road maps for making profound and sustainable change at the systems level. The audience will hear from leaders that are taking steps like revamping coordinated entry to factor equity into new housing subsidies to statewide plans. How have your racial equity goals changed the way your Continuum of Care is doing the work?
